The video problems are generally bandwidth problems.
First, on your laptop set the 802.11g adapter settings as follows. I found an obscure section in the DPG-1200 software help index where they define settings for your 802.11g adapter, and these make a big difference.

Transmit power = highest
wireless mode = 802.11g
throughput enhancement = enabled.
roaming aggressiveness = Lowest
Ad Hoc Power Management = Disabled
Turn off the ability of the computer to turn off this device to save power.
This can be enough. Remember to press the green button to put your laptop in "Video" mode when playing video. Won't work properly otherwise (is a lower resolution).
If you still have problems then you need to increase your bandwidth on your laptop. Plug it into an ethernet (that worked for me). I also have an 802.11n adapter on order which should work too.
As for your ball issue. Reset everything and the connection. If that doesn't fix it, you need a new remote.

After using driver pack solution, wich updated all of my drivers, Video streaming from internet at sites such as youtube lags like every 20 seconds.

I would first try and rollback your video card driver. This solution will explain how to do this:

1. Press Win + R to bring up Run Command
2. Type DEVMGMT.MSC and click OK
3. Double-click on Display Adapters
4. Right-click on the video adapter that is shown and click Properties.
5. Click the Driver tab.
6. Click Rollback Driver.
7. After the newer driver is uninstalled and replaced with the older driver restart the computer.
8. Go to Youtube and see if that solved your problem.

Note: Driver pack solutions don't always have the right/best drivers for your computer. Also, a new driver isn't always better for one's specific computer. In general, drivers don't need to be updated unless there is something wrong/not working with your current drivers. This is especially true for new video drivers.

Good luck, please post back to this solution if you have any difficulties, and thanks for using FixYa.

Hi, i do have sound at the moment, which makes me wonder if its not the multimedia video controller thats the problem,, but while a show is playing on my pc,the sound and video both start lagging and...

That is not a driver problem... If that happens to every video you play (or every similar type of video), it may be a lack of graphics memory. If that is the only video that plays that way, it could be corrupted. You may also just have viruses and/or too many programs running in the background. If all videos act this way, and never did before, it is most likely the latter.

SLOW MOUSE TRACKING PROBLEM & VIDEO/AUDIO SYNC PROBLEM with 27" iMac Quad computer. Using 42" Insignia as a second monitor using HDMI DVI cable. The video card unable to serve both monitors' draw...

I am using my tv as a second monitor as well, and i believe the lag problems with the monitor are due to the video/graphics card. I am not expert, but my pc is an alienware aurora with quad processors and 6gigs of ram. The only thing not top of the line is my video card, plus it gets slightly pixelated due to resolution not being sufficient from my video card. Otherwise flight sim X runs smoothly, except for the mouse lag issue. Best of luck, if your program is lagging also though, might be your driver

Lag problem - Guitar Hero / Wii / Philips 32PF5321/10 tv

Usually the video lags behind the audio. The reason is the video, in many TVs, takes longer to process than the audio coming direct from the device. To solve this, the audio needs to be delayed. This can be done by 1. Using the tv audio output. Most TVs sync the audio to the picture and this 'synced' audio is available at the output jack of the tv. 2. Delay the audio coming out of the device. Many home receivers have a 'Lipsync' feature designed for this issue. The setting is usually between 50 to 500 milliseconds of delay, depending on the TVs video processing time.
I hope this is clear and can help.

Check in your TV's settings for a selection called "Game mode" It will turn off the scaling chip in the TV(The PS3 will scale the image anyway) and remove the lag it was producing.

PS2 controller lag for rock band

On some home theater systems and TVs, there is a delay between what you press on the controller and what you see on screen.

There are three possible solutions:
1. In the options menu, you can "calibrate the lag". It may or may not work, but it will most likely reduce the lag.
2. If it's a HDTV, buy a PS3, with the PS3 version of the game, with PS3 controllers, and use a HDMI cable.
3. Play on a smaller, older SDTV (480i).

Wii Computer Hookup

you need a faster computer to fix this, the delay is caused by the computer coding the incomming signal.. any way why would you want to go via the computer anyway (unless you wish to capture what you are doing (the lag should not matter for this). If you are just trying to put the display of this onto the monitor, there are probably better ways of doing this directly to the monitor.(rather than going through the PC)
